Chips are cash­ing in for Beach Har­vest

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Shane Ni­chols

THE Wil­letts fam­ily of Ju­lat­ten had a big start to the year with their Beach Har­vest co­conut chip prod­ucts.

First they won the mass­mar­ket De­li­cious mag­a­zine’s food prod­uct award for the state of Queens­land.

It was the first time Beach Har­vest had en­tered its prod­ucts – in this case, the plain and the vanilla co­conut chips – in the cat­e­gory called Called From the Earth.

“I’m look­ing now to see what other food com­pe­ti­tions we could en­ter,” co-owner Casey Wil­letts said. “It gets a lot of pub­lic­ity. “I hope it gets us a bit of pres­tige, be­cause I’d love to place our prod­ucts with an air­line. like a snack in the busi­ness clas. Awards give you that bit of clout to per­haps give you more ap­peal to with the peo­ple who make those de­ci­sions.”

Ear­lier this year, near Easter, a pro­ducer from the na­tion­ally aired Living Room TV show con­tacted Beach Har­vest. Pre­sen­ters Chris and Miguel from the show were trav­el­ling along the East Coast.

“They asked if we could do a har­vest and Chris and Miguel could help us. They asked to meet us at the car­a­van park at Wonga Peak.”

Beach Har­vest obliged by col­lect­ing a few co­conuts, but mostly with­out TV star help

They used the sweet chilli prod­uct and the plain co­conut sprin­kles in their recipe for a recipe seg­ment. The episode is due to air next month.
